At least when it comes to installing basketball goals. I ordered an in ground basketball hoop from Costco. Hoops are different now. You don't cement the pole itself in, you cement in a plate that you then bolt the pole to. Sounds simple right....it's not. I dug the hole and now we have the plate and bolts secured in concrete....I think. We'll see how level this hoop ends up being when we hopefully get it installed next weekend. What happened to the backboard you would just mount to your garage?
